Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2013. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Ada Wong are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a new horror, the highly virulent C-virus, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.
Starting with three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play, both offline and online, not only will Resident Evil 6 deliver both different perspectives and gameplay styles but, with the introduction of the innovative Crossover mechanic players will be able to team up and share the horror. At key moments during the game, up to four players can join together online to tackle a specific situation, with some stages seeing the usual partnerships swapped to further increase the depth of gameplay.
Once players have completed the initial three campaigns they will unlock an all new campaign featuring Resident Evil’s very own femme fatale, Ada Wong. A single player experience, Ada’s campaign features unique missions, gameplay and weapons which will provide answers to the unanswered questions from the first three campaigns.

Good, but not survival horrorShaide | March 6, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »
One of the better newer installments of the Resident Evil franchise that I have played. It has 4 separate yet interweaving campaigns. Each campaign has it's own HUD style and play style.
You can play whichever campaign you want in any order, however I would recommend starting with Jakes, the Leons, then Chris and lastly the Ada campaign which will answer a lot of previously unanswered questions.
Gameplay wise, the games a blast! Like other current era RE games, this isn't typical Survival horror and is more action oriented. Still, if you enjoy the shooter feel of RE4 and RE5, then RE6 will blow you away!
In fact I only have one issue, and it's always been a Resident Evil related problem for me. Camera angles and controls. For instance When you are in a chase scene, the camera is directly in front of you, so you can see the monster approaching from behind. Then the camera abruptly changes so you can see the chasms in front of you that you have to jump across.
The problem with that is, while running you were making the character run south(As per the camera angle), then with the view switch you need to be running north, which means there's a brief second where your character wastes precious seconds to briefly turn and run toward the beast chasing you.
It's kinda annoying! Still, it's a great game with spectacular graphics and ranges in my top 3 favorite RE games.

I will be very short with review for Resident Evil 6 as the fans of this franchise does not need to be told that what happened in the past and what's the story is about. Resident Evil 6 is yet another title by Capcom that lost it's charm and the touch of the Survival Horror instead it becomes somewhat an Action-Story driven game where you keep shooting your enemies in order to reach the location.
Resident Evil 6 does not belong from the same league as it or may I say as they used to be but it's not that bad at all and you have plenty to play with four separate campaigns with 2 characters in each if I'm not wrong though all of the 4 campaigns are connected to each within the same time that takes place but at slightly different locations. Resident Evil 6 is not horror at all and the QTE (Quick Time Events) are a bit of annoying and players feels there is no need for them to be implemented further in the future for any RE game that would most likely come.
- 4 Campaigns
- Good Graphics without Locked Frame Rate
- Repetitive Gameplay
- Limited Variety of Weapons
- Did not stick to it's roots
- Camera Controls annoys at times

Resident Evil 6 is an excellent game with action campaigns at all times, puzzles and excitement. With characters that every fan of the series love, graphics are beautiful, the scenarios are many great, the gameplay is light and quiet did not see difficulty. Unfortunately some people who claim to be fans of the Resident Evil series, speak badly of this game without even having played. The game really had a sudden change in some ways but not for that reason cease to be good. For me the biggest change of the game was the ability to play multiple campaigns with all the characters, I found it very interesting and I hope to continue in the next games in the series. I highly recommend it for who are already fan of Resident evil.
Easily the Most Replayable Resident Evil to DateGodzillafan93 | Jan. 1, 2015 | See all Godzillafan93's reviews »
Re6...Where to begin?
I've been a huge fan of Resident Evil since playing the fourth game for the PS2. That said, I've every game in the main series (and ORC, which I don't really think counts); Re2 is still probably my favorite, and Re6 takes just about everything that made that game work and improves it.
Story wise, Re6 is similar to Re4, in that we have multiple playable characters with different objectives who converge at key points. We're still saddled with a partner this time around, but the AI has significantly improved even since Re5, and AI now have infinite ammo and health; the days of babysitting an idiot from Resident Evil 0 are long behind us.
Gun play is another major improvement. While the shop mechanic from Re4 and Re5 has been removed, the game doesn't really miss it; again, closer to the older games, you encounter guns as you go. Unfortunately, the guns themselves are often redundant (Leon and Chris's partners, for instance, end up carrying two weapons that are more or less identical, a special shotgun and a special sniper rifle, respectively), and inventory management still gets convoluted (it's a bit easier to manage than the train wreck that was Re5, though).
Controls as a whole are a vast improvement upon Re5. Re6 plays like it was actually designed for the PC; in addition to moving and shooting and moving and healing, there's even a designated healing button and the PC exclusive combine herbs button (once you actually play the game you'll understand how useful that last one is). I fiddled a little with my gamepad, but Re6 is the first numbered game in the series that plays like Capcom meant it for the PC.
The bottom line is, despite all the negative publicity this game got on release, it was one of 2012 most solid titles and remains the most playable Resident Evil game yet. If you're a fan of the series, do yourself a favor and pick it up. You won't be sorry.

I had played this game like hell and I must say it was fun. Would not be saying that this game has fantastic graphics, graphic are good, but could be better.
What actually matter is game-play and storyline. Story is quite good and interesting. Has pretty long storyline for multiple characters. Yeah that's right, you won't be getting rid this game soon :p.
Now lets talk about game-play. Well well well it's full of action, fantastic controls and lots of fun. This game would engage you for hours and you would actually enjoy it. I almost forgot about boss fight. Boss fights are really fun, trust me you would enjoy them.
Last time I would say is, Play and Enjoy!
